He's 26, funny, musically-gifted, engaging, and smart. With a chemistry degree, imagining a Bunsen burner resting on his piano shouldn't have been a stretch. One of his covers got my attention.🎶
Wow! I listened to a few of Joshua’s YouTube piano videos, he not so much plays the piano, as deeply explores it, captivating. Also I love the vocal / backing vocal arrangements on his cover version of ‘Where do the girls of summer go?’, totally reminiscent of a 60s / 70s California style, The Beach Boys vs. The Carpenters. V cool.
Awesome interview/piece! That's so great that you are reaching out to the newly discovered artists you find in your research/playtime. I wondered what the head on the piano thing was all about. Did you ask him about that?
There's a lot of garbage on YouTube, but it's worth sifting through because there's also a lot of great stuff on there, especially when it comes to indie musicians. You should check out Landon Blood. He does a lot of work for the amazing horror anthology podcast Old Gods of Appalachia (also worth checking out, if you're into that sort of thing) and YouTube is the only place I've been able to find his music so far.
